Well at my appointment today, doc said that I am 1 cm dilated and 70% effaced. She said that I was measuring 39 weeks, which is normal, but also said she thinks that the baby is big. I am being sent for an ultrasound to check baby's weight on Monday.
My ultrasound prescription (they are done out of office) says "macrosomia." When I looked this up, I found that it literally means "big baby syndrome." Has anyone had any experience with this? I know that ultrasounds are not completely accurate and from what I have read, "macrosomia" is not a good reason to induce labor or schedule a c-section. I am hoping that my doc does not want to resort to either of these things.
I am trying to stay calm, but keep thinking "OMG am I going to have a huge baby?!" I have gained a lot of weight, but I am not by any means abnormally large (at least I don't think so).
